Join us at 2020’s Alumni Celebration Week: February 2 – 9, Whitefish Mountain, Whitefish, MT
Our first Alumni Celebration Week, held in Whitefish, MT this last February, drew over 35 alumni and friends fun, good food and great skiing. Participants received discounts on rooms at the Grouse Mountain Lodge and skiing discounts for veteran skiers age 62 and older.

Mark your calendars for February 2-9, 2020, and NSP Alumni Celebration Week activities 2020.

What’s an “alumni” member of the National Ski Patrol?

Alumni membership is a special NSP registration category for members who no longer want to provide emergency care or rescue services but wish to remain involved with NSP.  NSP created the alumni program in 1977 and there are currently 4,500 registered alumni members.

Alumni membership is available for any member who has patrolled for at least a year, but who needs to take time away for some reason. Maybe a family issue crops up. Maybe work becomes too demanding. Maybe grad school beckons. Or maybe you just need a break, or it is time to retire!   

And what happens if you want to go back to patrolling? NSP offers you the flexibility to do that!

As long as your certifications are current, you can switch out of alumni status and go back to patrolling at any time.

So being an alumni member is a great way to stay connected with NSP and your fellow members.
